Prosopography in the digital era? Experiments in managing data from a Historical and Biographical dictionary

1. Abstract

When we refer to a large data amount, even if the sources are reliable, techniques of data mining and structuring still presenting as a challenge. Within this agenda, this presentation explores the uses of digital methodologies - specifically, text mining - in a historical dictionary composed of almost 8 thousand entries related to Brazilian Politics and from which we propose to compile a prosopographic database.
